“The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.” 


Health is our most precious asset and one that we often take for granted. I know I did. At the age of 29, I had been practicing for two years and thought that I had the world by the tail. Life as I knew it changed sharply when I was diagnosed with cancer. 27 walnut-sized cancer tumors, my left adrenal gland, and part of my left lung were removed.  Chemotherapy did not work for me. Fortunately, my father, Dr. Merritt Horning had made the research of the cause and prevention of chronic degenerative diseases his life work and passion. He taught that the body has an incredible capacity to heal itself if we can return it to optimal health through proper nutrition, exercise, stress management, and trust in divine power. I chose to follow his comprehensive health recovery program. Thanks to God and my father’s program I have enjoyed more than 30 years cancer free.

Although it was difficult, I would not trade my cancer experience for anything. It provided me with a new perspective that developed into a personal passion and commitment to helping others reach a higher level of health and well-being.

To Good Health,

Dr. Philip Horning
Director, Bio-Design
